Strategic Hotels & Resorts announced last night that the company has signed an agreement to acquire the remaining 63.6% ownership interest in the 757-room Hotel del Coronado for $210M. The company currently owns a 36.4% ownership position in the asset through a joint venture with certain affiliates of Blackstone Real Estate Partners VI (BX). The transaction values the asset at a gross value of approximately $787.0M, net of approximately $18.0M of cash currently held at the property and within the joint venture, and includes the assumption of the existing $475.0M mortgage financing. The net purchase price represents a 14.3 times multiple on forecasted 2014 EBITDA and a 6.2% capitalization rate on forecasted 2014 NOI. Management estimates the to-be-acquired 63.6% interest in the hotel is projected to generate an incremental $19M-$21M of EBITDA for the remainder of 2014. In Q1, RevPAR grew 11% at the property resulting in 21% EBITDA growth. The transaction, which is subject to certain closing conditions, is expected to close in the second quarter of 2014.
